PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Immaculately presented throughout is this unique 3-bedroom Victorian terraced cottage with a large 92ft, private SOUTH facing rear garden, conveniently located on this quiet residential cul-de-sac twixt Forest Hill and Honor Oak Park. The house is set back from the street by a neatly manicured fenced front garden with a path leading to the front door. The house has nice kerb appeal with exposed bricks and grey framed double glazed windows that area a feature throughout the house. There is also plenty of on street parking as there are no restrictions. Upon entry there is a large dining reception area which acts as a grand entrance hall. It offers plenty of character and charm with an exposed brick, working fireplace and panelled walls that are painted in Farrow & Ball which is used throughout the house. Underfoot is bleached oak flooring which runs seamlessly throughout the ground floor and upstairs. The kitchen follows which is located in the middle of the house. It has a high spec finish with plenty of cupboards incorporating top end integrated appliances and expensive stone worktops that houses the butler sink and the hob with oven below. The tap and cupboard door handles are all fashionable brass fittings and there is a window above the sink that looks out to the side return. A cupboard in the kitchen houses a relatively new, energy efficient Vaillant boiler which comes with a 5-year guarantee. At the far end of the house is the lounge which offers direct access to the rear garden through beautiful, double glazed Crittal style French doors. This room is especially bright thanks to the south facing aspect and the dual aspect windows to the side. The garden is a really generous size at 92ft long and thanks to being South facing it’s a sun trap all year around. It has a decked area closest to the house which wraps around the house down the side return offering an abundance of dining and lounging space. The side return space also offers plenty of potential for a side return extension which would transform the ground floor living space, this of course would be subject to planning consent. Beyond the deck is a lawn that is surrounded by matures boarders and a winding pathway through the middle. The staircase leads from the front dining/entrance hall and is flooded in natural light from a skylight above the landing. The loft is accessible from here, which is a good size and has been boarded out for storage. The hallway leads to all of the rooms on the first floor with bleached oak flooring and Farrow & Ball paint throughout. At the front of the house is a good size double bedroom with a window to the front and a panelled sound proofed feature wall. The smaller of the bedrooms is located in the middle of the house, it has a huge storage cupboard, window to the side return and would make a great home office or a child’s bedroom. The bathroom is luxuriously finished, clad floor to ceiling in Italian concrete effect porcelain tiles. There is a bathtub with shower above and a stylish Crittal style shower screen, a contemporary toilet and a sophisticated marble wash hand basin that sits on an vanity cupboard. Above is a double-glazed window for natural light and ventilation. The bedroom at the back of the house is a good size double and offers lovely views over the rear garden, it too has bleached oak flooring and a panelled feature wall. Firs Close is approximately 8 mins walk to Honor Oak Park station where there are regular services to London Bridge (around 15mins) as well as London Overground services to Shoreditch and Highbury and Islington. Forest Hill station is also close by in the opposite direction. The trendy high street of Honor Oak boasts a range of independent shops, cafes, bars, a deli and several highly-recommended restaurants. Nearby green leafy open spaces can be found at Blythe Hill Fields, One Tree Hill and Horniman gardens all offering fantastic views of the London Skyline. There is also a very good selection of highly rated nurseries and primary schools nearby.
